The Man United starting XI defeated 6-1 at home by Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday cost £456m. The outlay on Paul Pogba and Harry Maguire would have bought virtually the entire Bayern team.

Europa League winners Sevilla are first up for Chelsea on Tuesday in this season's edition, with Krasnodar and Rennes also in the group.

Though the Blues were cast aside easily by Bayern, Lampard believes they will be stronger having faced such a high level of opposition, while also boosted by adding players with Champions League experience, such as Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech and Thiago Silva, who was a beaten finalist with Paris Saint-Germain.

"The players that were here last year, the young players, certainly the Bayern Munich game because it's a high level of opposition, it would have been a learning curve for them," Lampard told the media.

"It's the Champions League, the top club competition in world football. They'll be better for it; they'll want to improve.

Frank Lampard has been discussing the international involvement of two of his players over the past week as we prepare to face Southampton in the Premier League, one who made Lampard praises James’s ‘phenomenal progress’ and expresses gratitude for Ziyech’s important minutes with Morocco.

"The players that we've brought in, some have more Champions League experience. We've generally brought in younger players, so it's important we learn lessons as we go because the Champions League is so cut-throat.

"You have to absolutely focus against the level of opposition we'll face, especially Sevilla."

Werner and Havertz registered their first league goals for Chelsea against Southampton on Saturday, becoming the fifth and sixth German players to score in the Premier League for the Blues, though they were held to a 3-3 draw at Stamford Bridge.

Lampard acknowledged he wanted his team to be more pragmatic as they aimed to close out the match, though insisted there are no communication issues.

"I'm certainly not looking to play brave football in the last moments of a game and that was my message to the side," he added.

"We need to go longer, miss out their press. I don't think the players did that enough. I think that's something that’s ingrained in our players, they want to play football.

"I'm not concerned about communication. I'm talking about game management. When things turn on you in the game, the players have to gauge that on the pitch.

"That's part of being a top player and where Chelsea want to go. So it's absolutely the players' choice. If there's moments we have to see out in games, then the players have to do that on the pitch."
